From Schreiner Iris catalog, 1947: PURPLE MOOR (Lapham 1947) ML. 36". Really good purple iris are scarce. This luxurious glossy velvet purple is a handsome iris massively broad and full formed . The round, full petals possess an unusually heavy, lustrous sheen like richest velvet. In color it is the general shading of Master Charles in a flower half again as large. Smoothly colored the flower is entirely self colored even to the full broad hafts which are solidly shaded the same glossy purple. We consider this iris an exceptional plant. A descendant of illustrious The Red Douglas it carries the fine attributes of this well bred iris into a new creation of rich glossy purple. Price, each $15.00.
